Always the crowd, a sh*t crowd in a great venue will be a rubbish night, but
a great crowd in a sh*tty venue will still be good. I've found from DJing
(and being in/working with bands) in London that very few people are
receptive to music slightly different to what they are expecting. The best
nights I've had have been in a sh*tty little 'goth' pub not far from where I
live, mainly because 95% of the people who go there have wide music tastes
and can appreciate good music, whatever the genre.
